Grand Rapids Business Journal;7/17/2006, Vol. 24 Issue 29, p1
The article reports on the decision of the Thomas M. Cooley Law School to seek damages from the American Bar Association (ABA) before the U.S. Court of Appeals despite ABA's move to grant its request to institute three-year degree programs at its Grand Rapids and Rochester, Michigan campuses. The damages are sought in part for foregone income and the expenses that incurred due to loss of projected enrollment while awaiting for ABA approval of the programs. The Higher Learning Commission-North Central Association has approved the school's full three-year juris doctor program and the first two years of coursework in the Grand Rapids program.
